Studio Workshop

Established in early 2014 as a collaboration between existing domains of expertise, Studio Workshop is a practice that defies categorisation by operating at the intersection of design, technology, craftsmanship, and the built environment. Studio Workshop is equal parts design studio and fabrication workshop, combined to deliver original results that are specific to the needs and parameters of each unique client and site. Using advanced computational design skills, in-house digital fabrication methods (CAD/CAM manufacturing), and time tested traditions of hand-craft and common-sense approaches to design, the practice is capable of delivering stunning results that are efficient, effective, and completely customised.

The collective experience of the Studio Workshop team allows delivery of projects ranging from small scale, table-top bespoke items, furniture, interior fit-outs, signage, and building facades to full-scale residential, commercial, and civic scale projects. Our services include design, custom fabrication, and construction. In the best case scenario, we will take your project from concept through all phases of implementation and completion.

Operating from the Gold Coast, we have developed and/or implemented projects across the east coast of Australia with work in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, McKay, and in Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, Japan, and the United States.

Studio Workshop is led by Rory Spence (Bachelor of Architectural Studies, Bond University; Master of Architecture, Bond University) and Chris Knapp (Bachelor of Science in Architecture, University of Michigan; Master of Architecture, Princeton University).
